Every year, hundreds of people go to the mountains of this town in Yunnan to pick mushrooms and sell them on the international market. Yunnan province has 90% of all the mushroom species in China. We went to a wild mushroom town, foraged in the mountains, and talked to the locals about poisonous shrooms.
This is our first mini-documentary and the newest episode of our ongoing series, WILD.
